Charles Eisenstein – sacred economics

For something to become an object of commerce, it must be made scarce first. 

If the material world is fundamentally an abundant world, all the more abundant is the spiritual world: the creations of the human mind—songs, stories, films, ideas, and everything else that goes by the name of intellectual property. Because in the digital age we can replicate and spread them at virtually no cost, artificial scarcity must be imposed upon them in order to keep them in the monetized realm. Industry and the government enforce scarcity through copyrights, patents, and encryption standards, allowing the holders of such property to profit from owning it.

The goal of a compassionate economy, therefore, is not to provide “jobs,” as most liberal politicians seem to think. Once work has become mechanical, it is in a sense too late — inhuman work might as well be done by machines. I cannot help but remark on the inanity of economic programs that seek to make more “jobs,” as if we needed more goods and more services. Why do we want to create more jobs? It is so people have money to live. For that purpose, they might as well dig holes in the ground and fill them up again, as Keynes famously quipped. Present economic policies attempt just that: witness the current efforts to reignite housing construction at a time when there are 19 million vacant housing units in the United States! (3)  Wouldn’t it be better to pay people to do nothing at all, and free up their creative energy to meet the urgent needs of the world?

The most successful people I’ve met:

1. Were rich
2. That’s pretty much it
3. A lot of them were really mediocre
4. Some were actually stupid
5. Most were boring
6. It didn’t matter, they were ‘succesful’
7. In a capitalist society, wealth determines success
8. $
9. It’s money.


wilson money law

Whenever there are people, people are doing the work.
Wherever they remain economically organised, something and / or someone is seeking a rent.
And the rentier is the one dictating the terms.
